Herbed Goat Cheese Dressing

Makes a bit more than 1 cup.

Creamy goat cheese and our Herbes de Romance team up in this luscious dressing. The recipe comes just in time for the start of salad season, but we suspect that you’ll want to make it year round.

Try drizzling the dressing over a simple salad of early season head lettuce, baby arugula, some chive flowers, and lots of thinly sliced radishes. Top with crumbled hard-boiled egg.

2 ounces chèvre-style goat cheese
2 tablespoons buttermilk or plain kefir
½ cup mild oil, such as canola or grapeseed
¼ cup white wine vinegar
1 small garlic clove, grated (½ teaspoon)
1½ tablespoons Herbes de Romance blend
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Black pepper to taste

Put all the ingredients in a bowl or jar and use stick blender to combine them until the dressing is smooth and creamy. Use the dressing right away or store it, tightly covered, in the fridge for a week or more.

Note: You can make another delicious salad dressing by following this recipe and substituting our Kozani Spice blend for the Herbes de Romance.

[Sidebar]

Our Herbes de Romance blend is inspired by the French classic “Herbes de Provence.”

Its fragrant combination of herbs and flowers almost magically transforms the humblest dish into something special, try it on omelets, baked fish, roast chicken, and in potato salad or rice.
